27RKSS with slide, awning, and stabilizer issues

Purchase this wildwood rkss a year ago and finally got to take it out today. Ended up getting a flat tire 160 miles into our journey and at that time the stabilizers worked. Changed the tire and got back on the road to discover that the slide, awning, and stabilizers will not work. Iím plugged in to an electrical source and Iím almost 100% positive itís the fuse.

Iím able to kind of access the fuses, but i have no idea which one to pull. Anyone know?
We are going to use two phones to put eyes on the fuses, and pull the one we need. The owners manual doesnít give any decent info in which fuse to pull. Even the labeling is crappy.

I attempted to manual override the slide, and struck out so rather than get eaten alive by mosquitos (Iím in Alaska) I decided to try this fuse swap tomorrow when I can access new ones at the store.

When you had a flat tire did the tire come apart? Could possibly broke a wire under the trailer.

The fuses for the slides, stabilizers and awning are in a couple of places, so you may have to look in more than one place to find the blown one.

Since all those items are affected I would look near the tongue for a 12 volt breaker or fuse. If you have a remote control there are also fuses on the remote receiver that could be the problem.

Do any of the 12V items operate, i.e. entertainment center or lights?

Thankfully it didn’t come apart. While I was trying to figure out how to jack it up, I started to use the stabilizer. My wife got on to me before I got it down, so it was working after the tire fiasco.

I haven’t seen anything that looks like a fuse box or whatnot near the tongue. Battery is fine. It’s connected. I’ll check some more.

We tried the remote last night and it operated everything but those three.

LED lights work. Regular lights work as does the fan and water heater. The entertainment center area isn’t accessible since it’s behind the slide out area.

The three things you listed are all connected to the remote controller. It is located under the kitchen sink. You may have to remove the trash can to access it. It contains several fuses.

This is what it looks like;

Mine is a 282Rk, very similar. My fuse was the green one that operated the slide and power jacks. Yours might run all 3. On mine the button on the wall worked but not the remote. So you may have a different issue or yours may be wired a bit differently. Mine has 2 fuse boxes, one for slides awning and power jacks is well hidden.

Not to hijack the thread, we had a 27rkss and it was the most spacious TT I have ever owned. Recliners, open living room, Dang I miss that TT.
Sorry for no help on the thread.

No worries. Once we got it figured out (blown fuse) and got the slide out, we were pretty impressed with the room.

Glad to hear you got it fixed. I've been wondering. Where did you find the blown fuse?
